Here's what you missed on the season five finale of Cake Boss.
The season five finale of Cake Boss that aired Monday night was a sad one. As the episode opens we see Buddy's Mama back from Florida and in the bakery. She jokes with the customers. “I'm Buddy's mom, without me he wouldn't be here,” she says. But Mama is sick. She's been diagnosed with ALS. Buddy tries to explain to the camera but it's obvious this is very hard for him to talk about. “It's a horrible, horrible disease,” he says. There is no cure. ALS affects a person's ability to move, to do even the slightest tasks like feed themselves or tie their shoelaces. It's a creeping paralysis that doesn't happen in an instant, but over time. A person diagnosed with it sees their body breaking down little by little. They have to suffer the …

They want one they can eat while they're free-falling from thousands of feet in the sky. “That's just another level of crazy,” Buddy says. Another level? These guys jump out of airplanes for fun – that's actually all the levels of crazy. The skydivers joke that Buddy should join them on the jump. He says he would but that his wife Lisa would object. Ah yes, the old "My Wife Would Object" excuse, the arch enemy to the "Honey…
